Help test x64sc, the next generation x64.

We've spent a month and a half rewriting x64 into x64sc and would like to have some feedback.

Please test this with as many things as you can and report any emulation bugs you find in here or alternatively on #vice-dev @ freenode.net.

Let's bring VICE from the 90's into the modern age!

- emulator rewritten, more accurate
- models:
   Breadbox (default) x64sc -VICIImodel 0 -ciamodel 0 -gluelogictype 0
   C64C               x64sc -VICIImodel 1 -ciamodel 1 -gluelogictype 1
   C128-ish           x64sc -VICIImodel 1 -ciamodel 1 -gluelogictype 0
- slow (will be faster)
- possible regressions, please test
- no NTSC (yet)
- no REU (yet)
- no snapshots (yet)
- mystery drive bug (disable virtual device traps)
- GUI not yet updated

Win32 binary: x64sc-r22294-win32.zip

tlr: you could undo the previously suggest console_can_stay_open = 0 (and set to 1 again) and see wether it still does.... (x should close the monitor as before, g should exit but keep the monitor open. additionally changing the "keepmonitoropen" resource to 0 should completely revert to old behaviour).

in other news, i fixed some of the monitor annoyances the other night. it does properly not close when singlestepping now and should basically behave as expected also in windows now :)

Win32 build: x64-x64sc-xvic-r25789-win32.zip

Seems to work nicely, good work!

In this release joystick emulation on PC keyboard works much better :o) and is much more usable ;) but - still not exactly perfect ;)
If you press the left while still holding right it doesn´t change anything but leave right holding (it is not as wrong - but better it was if it is left because you changed to left - so you like to go left) But it happen if you then release right..

///This behavior causes problems when you holding right and then you press down (plus holding fire) - sometimes it is still only right (plus fire) but it should be right-down (plus fire). And to me it happen randomly.///

text in /// not exactly describe the problem - I found that it only reacts slow to me but it works and is now usable.. But still better to behave like I described it upper.

And I made a table where I describing how it should work. You can download it here:

i think this has some problems after winvice 2.3 stable and these x64sc betas..

win 7 x86, local=TR
file - attach disk image - choosing a disk image above; below, image contents are visible for the first time.

again, file - attach disk image, previous disk image is selected but image contents are empty (for windows XP it's normal)

Vice true drive emulation bugs on my filename loaders.

When flipping disk sides you need to wait 1-2 seconds before pressing space to continue loading.

To test :

Download this zip.

Move the even (00 02 04 etc) filenames to one disk.
And move the odd (01 03 05 etc) filenames to another disk.

This way you will have to flip the disk every time you load a new pic. Notice you have to wait 1-2 seconds before it can load the file.
This doesn't happen on real hw.

Another bug:

When I have a d71 or d81 image attached to vice (and 1571 or 1581 drive emulation selected).
Then I set true drive emulation to OFF because I want to load with "virtual drive emulation".

Now when I do a M-R to detect the drive, before starting loader, vice will in 90% of my tries return data from the 1541 drive rom. Making my loader belive the drive is a 1541 drive and that my 2bit fastloader is supposed to be installed.

Vice shouldn't do this I believe. It should only return the error channel message "73, virtual drive emulation....".. not data from the 1541 drive rom.

Everything works fine when i do the same thing using D64 and 1541 drive emulation.

thats a known problem (also dont spill bugs into this thread please, add them to the tracker. the one who is fixing the drive stuff doesnt read this thread at all, for example.)

This might work:
$ cd vice/
$ make distclean
$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure
$ make

I'm still willing to test stuff on my Drean if people need it, for making emulation better etc. Just PM me. Or post here.

I have it hooked up.
